This story's a hoot!

"Rivendell International Airport" by Primsong

A bit of humor considering what might have happened if the Fellowship had decided to take a plane instead of walking all that ways - would Anduril make it through security?


Aragorn, who had placed himself at the head of the line in case there were any dangerous moves from the guards, finally stepped up before them, handing them his ticket as he had seen previous people do.

The guard examined it. "Nrogara Cte?" he said. "Odd name."

"It's a Northern dialect," Aragorn said with a straight face.

"Going to Gondor?"

"Just visiting some cousins."

"All right, seems to be in order. Take off your shoes. Go ahead and step through the gate."

"Take off my shoes?"

"That's right. They go in this bin. You can put them back on after you go through."

Aragorn shrugged and knelt down to tug off his boots, then walked through the gate.


Everyone still waiting in line jumped.. Aragorn startled and reflexively whipped out his sword. The guards just shook their heads at him.

"That's probably what set it off."


"It's metal, you'll need to take it off."


"The gate detects if you are carrying any metal," the first guard told him as if instructing a small child.

Aragorn took a deep breath then slowly unbuckled Anduril in its sheath and laid it aside. "Now what?"

"Walk through again."

He tried a second time.


"Any other weapons?"

Aragorn & Arwen still breaking my heart

"Arwen" by Beth

It always amazed her that he could say so much, simply by saying her name.

Adults; rated for the married couple and what they get up to.


—when her name fell as softly as a prayer of thanksgiving she knew that for all that Middle-earth had placed their hopes in him, he had placed his own in her."

Arwen's pov, 2 years on.

Little Estel

"Erestor and Estel" by Pentangle-linnon

A series of short stories, each chapter one complete ficlet, starring grumpy ol' Erestor and darling little Estel.

This is a series (ongoing) of ficlets concerning a very young Estel and the author's version of Erestor, an advisor to Elrond. Each 'chapter' is a complete story. They progress forward in time, showing the developing relationship between the two.

General audience, 5 chapters so far; Chapter 6, "Erestor's Garden," is really good.

A glimpse of the early decades of the Fourth Age

"The Days of the King" by [ profile] randomrattle

34 chapters, adult content (het)

Really strong characterizations, mostly canon characters, primarily Aragorn, Arwen, Legolas, Gandalf, Gimli.

Have been meaning to rec this for awhile. Book One is complete, and random has started Book Two, more of an action adventure (plenty of action in Book One, however, make no mistake!).

Now available at HASA

"Elladan's Biograph Script" by Darth Fingon

The continuing saga of Elladan, son of Elrond.

A very ridiculous AU in which Rivendell bears a striking resemblance to modern day Calgary, Alberta. Elladan's journal records his daily life, beginning the summer before the Fellowship of the Ring is formed. Implied and non-graphic sexuality, both slash and het.

(no subject)

"Arwen's Will" by Wimsey
1685 words; no warnings

Elrond learns of Arwen's betrothal. An angry elf lord and his determined daughter.

. . . "Would you have prepared a betrothal feast, fetched Gilraen back from her kin in the north? Would you have given us your blessing and rejoiced in our love?"

Makes me almost wish that Arwen had followed Aragorn into the wild . . .

Why do Aragorn and Legolas keep getting into trouble?

Why do Aragorn and Legolas always end up in dangerous situations? Will Elrond finally put his foot down?

It's all here: the unbelievable injuries, the angst/humor/healing tea, Elrond's eyebrows, The Els, Aragorn's conveniently-missing mother ("she's just too hard to write").

I enjoy reading Aragorn Legolas friendship fics, but there is a certain amount of cliche that's developed in the fanon, and it's fun to see that exposed.
